Disappointing administration in the high school. A counselor has blown deadlines for student to receive scholarships, principal doesn't call parents back. In addition, teachers and administration assume the worst about good students and could have potentially destroyed an innocent child's life. Would suggest going to a district where they actually care about students, rather than this one that just pretends they do. I know one student who will leave without good memories and will never look back because of the treatment received at OFHS.

I think Olmsted Falls school district is a great school to bring your children to. I transferred from St Joes and found Olmsted Falls classes and teachers were better equipped to challenge students and fit my educational needs the best. Some teachers at the lower grade levels care more about being students friends rather than giving a quality education. As you move up, the teachers are great. Some parents need to worry about raising their kids better rather than threatening teachers to pass them or make them do something the parents should be doing. As for the hormonal high school reviewer, get off this site and study. It's "They're rude and they're not the nicest teachers". No one likes high school when they are in it. Grow up.

I have kids in the Olmsted Falls middle school, and am VERY disappointed in the way the administration runs the building, they really need a reality check, I agree with some of the other reviews, I think that a lot of what is done is to "LOOK GOOD" to the outside world. EDUCATION does not seem to be the top priority to the principle / vice principle I think they are on a power trip and they feel they can do no wrong. I would NEVER tell anyone to bring their kids into this district, BIGGEST MISTAKE of my life bringing my kids to live in Olmsted Falls.

I attended Olmsted Falls schools when I was growing up, and knew it to be a good school. We moved back to the area when my son became school aged. Boy, was that a huge mistake. He has been bullied mercilessly. Both mentally and physically. The administration turns a blind eye. They have no clue as to what is going on right under their noses, BUT they can tell you as a parent, how YOU are going wrong in raising your child! Amazing! Enough is enough already. Something needs to be done. I would NOT reccommend this school system to anyone. I am embarrassed to say I attended these schools, and quite ashamed that I sent my child here to be tormented. The assistant principal says maybe counseling would help my child. NO, what would help my child is to be able to go to a school to learn. Instead, he lives every evening in terror knowing that he has to go back again the next day and deal with all the hate. Do your jobs and protect our kids.

I moved to this district to give my kids a better education. I am less than satisfied. The amount of bullying that goes on is unheard of. Even with constant communication and proof nothing has been done. It seems the administration cares if your child is either in sports or comes from money. Sadly I will be homeschooling even though I pay a boat load of money in taxes. I would not recommend this district to anyone. The administration seems to be trying to brush these issues to the side and its not solving anything. I spoke to many parents out here with the same issues. Very disappointing.

I have been told by several students that their grades had been drastically bumped up in order for the teachers to look better. My experience with this school is not very good, as I personally feel that most of what is portrayed is stictly for show, especially when it somes to the state and national audience. Not to mention, the administration does not know the first thing when it comes to bullying!

I attended Olmsted Falls High School just a couple years ago and am now a student at Cleveland State. Although in early years at the school I felt some of the teachers or classes were unreasonable, in my later years there I found relief in having more control of my classes and found teachers I could respect. Undoubtingly, some of the teachers at this school are not tolerable nor are they understanding. It's not in terms of intelligence or discipline, they're simply ignorant and arrogant. Other teachers at this school are inspirational and alone the reason to try to find sense and life in the world. Overall, I'm confident in saying this school has prepared me for my further education and dealing with people. In my last year at Olmsted the students seemed to rebel more than ever and the administration's clueless as to what to do so their discipline is excessive in unnecessary ways. It seemed as though they sought to find problems where there were none and didn't really see or care about what was really going on in most cases.

I am a student at Olmsted falls high school I just started here as a freshman and I hate it!! I went to Olmsted falls middle school and I loved it, but I got to the high school and it s the worst! The teachers are awful!! There rude, and there not the nicest teachers that you can meet, when you call the principle he may sound concerned but really they don't care!! The only thing that I like about Olmsted falls is the kids i have made a lot of friends but I hear that the middle school is getting a bad group of kids coming into the high school, this school is not worth it! The test scores might be good, but the teachers and the staff are rude and they just don't care what you are the parents have to say. We moved here for the schools and now we are regurgitating it! don't make the mistake that we made on going to this school!

An excellent school with great teachers although over the last few years the discipline has become slack with the new administration.

I graduated from Olmsted Falls High School in recent years and now attend Ohio State University. I feel that it has prepared me better than many other students here. The teacher not only teach you the material, but also show different types of teaching meathods and teach how to study.
